Who knew music’s two Carly’s had anything in common? Well, Carly Rae Jepsen did. In an interview with Radio.com, she told us about their name connection, their style similarities and a shared love.

“You know, I think there was a miscommunication with my mom and I,” Jepsen started. “Because at some point I believed that I was named after [Carly Simon]. And I had a conversation with [my mom] at lunch the other day. She was like, ‘No, no, no. I loved her, but I named you just purely because I liked the name Carly.’ But I liked believing that for a little while because I was like, ‘I’m named after a famous singer.’ Who also married James Taylor, whom I love.”

Taylor and Simon were married from 1972-83 and had two children together. Simon famously wrote many confessional songs about their rocky relationship. But it’s not just a love for Taylor AND a name that Jepsen shares with the “You’re So Vain” singer.

“In truth I think I’m inspired by her for many reasons,” she explained. “I think her music is amazing. I love the way she writes, which is very — almost to the point. There’s not a lot of — I want to say there’s not a lot of metaphor to it. I think it’s really relatable and honest. And I love her fashion sense.”
